Lyrics to The Boy From...
Songwriters: Stephen Sondheim / Mary Rodgers
Tall and tender, like an Apollo,
He goes walking by, and I have to follow him,
The boy from tacarembo la tumbe del fuego santa malipas zatatecas la junta del sol y cruz. ("crooth")
When we meet, I feel I'm on fire
And I'm breathless everytime I enquire,
"How are things in tacarembo la tumbe del fuego santa malipas zatatecas la junta del sol y cruz." ("crooth")
Why, when I speak, does he vanish?
Why is he acting so clannish?
I wish I understood Spanish.
When I tell him I think he's the end,
He giggles a lot with his friend.
Tall and slender, moves like a dancer,
But I never seem to get any answer
From the boy from Tacarembo la tumbe del fuego santa malipas zatatecas la junta del sol y cruz. ("crooth")
I got the blueth.
Why are his trousers vermillion?
His trousers are vermillion.
Why does he claim he's Castilian?
He thayth that he'th Cathtilian.
Why do his friends call him Lillian?
And I hear at the end of the week
He's leaving to start a boutique.
Thought I smile, I'm only pretending
'Cause I know today's the last i'll be spending
With the boy from tacarembo la tumbe del fuego santa malipas zatatecas la junta del sol y cruz. ("crooth")
Tomorrow he sails.
He's moving to wales,
To live in llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyr ndrobullllandysiliogogogoch.

Australia is actually in Eurovision
Glad you're taking Eurovision to task. It's unadulterated schlock, mostly. It's popular in Australia, so much so that- despite being antipodal to Europe- we are in the competition. 'Making Your Mind Up' was a big hit in Australia and even 'Moscow' gets played occasionally on the more adventurous commercial stations.
"Wild Horses" by Gino Vannelli was also a big hit in Australia but 'Black Cars' is unknown. So does this mean Australia is really in Minneapolis? The lack of snow says otherwise, but perhaps there's a porthole somewhere?
